Nonpoint is currently tearing it up on a cross-country tour in support of its recent, eponymous album. It is the band’s ninth overall studio effort, but the first featuring their new line-up. In 2011, founders Elias Soriano (vocals) and Robb Rivera (drums) brought in bassist Adam Woloszyn and guitarists Dave Lizzio and Rasheed Thomas, a move which re-energized Nonpoint.
On February 1, 2013, Metalholic caught up with Nonpoint drummer Robb Rivera before the band’s free concert performance in Boise, Idaho. Robb and Nonpoint feel so strongly about the power of their new record and line-up that they are performing six songs off the record on their current tour, including the hits, “Left For You” and “I Said It”. Robb and I talked about this, as well as how the new line-up came together, working with producer Johnny K, and more.
